What is it design and build actually do?

We are a building company based in Glasgow who specialise in house extensions. We carry our own fully qualified tradesmen including Ground workers, bricklayers, joiners, plumbers, heating engineers, roofers, electricians, Plasterers, Roughcasters, decorators and tillers.

How much will i expect to pay?

The cost of a project varies greatly due to the client specification, Brick / Block construction, timber frame construction also varies depending upon the function of the room, kitchens, bedrooms bathrooms. In general if we exclude all client finishes such as kitchen units, sanitary ware, flooring and tiles then £800 - £1000 m2 + VAT is a reasonable shell cost estimate. We will also be happy to price work from clients existing project drawings. 

Is the quote price the price that I will pay?

We take our time assessing your needs for each individual quote ensuring that all details are covered. The only scenario that could arise where the client pays a different amount to that of the quote is that the client has asked for additional works, which happens often once the client can see one area finished to a high standard other areas become important to the overall design. 

Can you deal with the planning application and building warrant?

Yes, we can provide you with a design and build service and coordinate with the architect ourselves.

What is the quality of finish?
